Comprehensive Braces Consultation in Scottsdale
Before initiating your braces treatment, our skilled team will conduct a thorough evaluation using digital X-rays, photographs, and dental impressions. This data helps us formulate a tailored treatment plan to address your unique orthodontic challenges. The plan outlines the specific tooth movements required and guides the precise placement of your brackets.
After bracket placement, a specialized wire exerts controlled pressure on the teeth requiring adjustment. This initiates a process known as "remodeling," which gradually repositions the teeth. The wire interacts with bone cells around the tooth roots, facilitating bone removal and reformation. This ensures your teeth move into their ideal positions.
Post-treatment, it's crucial to wear a retainer regularly. This prevents your teeth from reverting to their original positions, maintaining your newly aligned smile.
Treatment Options Tailored to You
Metal braces consist of brackets that are securely attached to each tooth and connected by a metal wire, known as an archwire. Small bands, called ligatures, secure the wire to the brackets. The archwire is periodically adjusted to apply the right amount of pressure to your teeth, guiding them into their ideal positions over time.
For those who seek the effectiveness of traditional braces but desire a more discreet look, ceramic (clear) braces offer an excellent alternative.
Much like their metal counterparts, ceramic braces consist of brackets and wires. However, the brackets are made from a clear or tooth-colored ceramic material. These brackets are attached to each tooth and connected by a wire, which is also often tooth-colored or clear, making the entire apparatus less noticeable.
